Ten tips to help you maintain your geocaching streak
Let’s talk about geocaching streaks. A streak is when you log a geocache or attend an Event Cache every day for an extended period of time. Some geocachers have maintained them for a month, a year, or even longer — several streak freaks have even maintained them for YEARS.
You can track your streak on your profile statistics. But what if the weather is terrible? What about that thing called “your life?” What if you just want to binge watch movies from your couch with your four cats and a pint of ice cream?
These ten tips will help you plan ahead, stay motivated, and become a streak freak!*
1. Know when to hold ’em
Reserve low difficulty/terrain caches located close to your home or work for busy and/or extreme weather days.
2. Know when to fold ’em
3. Have reservations
4. Midnight Madness
5. Elementary, my dear Watson!
6. Hostess with the mostest
7. Get physical
8. Au-tumn is au-some
9. Ice ice baby
10. First is the worst
One last thing…
If your streak unexpectedly ends for any reason (one of our employees gave birth to her third child just two days before completing her 365 streak), chin up. You can always swap out a streak for a 365 grid. Plus, now you’re set up for a new personal benchmark to beat!
